Adobe Flash Player 11.3 - Why No Sound?

Flash Player loads the video and runs without crashing, but there is no sound. Reloading the page makes no difference. I cannot find any Flash Player "setting" that would turn the sound on/off. Firefox is oblivious to the situation.

Maybe something when wrong with the rollback to an older flash version. Adobe just released a new version for Windows today. You should try downloading and installing that - Updating Flash

As you are using Windows have you checked with IE does that play the video ok with sound ?

This is a long shot but there have been very many problems with the release Flash Player 11.3, up until today we have often advise users to downgrade to the secure version Flash 10.3 or the NOT secure version 11.2.

There has been a new release of FlashPlayer today, intended to fix some of these problems so the advice now is to try that

Found a simple fix. Got to uninstall programs, and uninstall the flash player 11.3 plugin...Not the player, just the plugin. Everything should work fine after that.

I have another kind of problem. The Flash Player plugin won't remember the "sound setting" when i close Firefox. It's highly irritating especially when i start youtube videos and i get a big loud suprise. It's setting resets itself to max after every Firefox closedown.

By all means read threads for the advice they contain, vote on them if you wish, and even add a comment confirming a solution works for you, or suggesting one you think will help the original poster.

If you have a new question though even if it is very similar it is best to start your own thread by using the link

If you delete the FlashPlayer plugin you will not then be able to use FlashPlayer. You may in some instances find that a website then provides some alternative, possibly something that will play in Windows Media Player or RealPlayer.
